HARROW INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL BANGKOK Harrow International School, Bangkok is an Early Years - Year13 Independent School which follows a traditional British curriculum. It has 1,150 pupils on the roll. A Harrow education is a broad one, enabling pupils to fulfil their academic potential and enjoy many activities outside the classroom. The school is situated on a spacious campus in Don Muang, a district in northern Bangkok, and the facilities are excellent, including those for boarding. The teachers are primarily from the UK and very well qualified; many of them live on site or close to the school in the local area. This enables a strong sense of community to develop. There are 35 nationalities in the student body and links with the other schools in the Harrow Foundation are strong. These include Harrow School, The John Lyon School, Harrow International School Beijing and soon, Harrow International School Honk Kong (from 2012). There are also good relationships with other International Schools in Bangkok. Harrow Bangkok is a thriving, energetic school which promotes individual development within a caring, supportive, international community. The school was founded in 1998 by Stuart Morris, formerly Headmaster of Papplewick Preparatory School in Ascot and then KTJ in Malaysia. Thailand was thought to be an appropriate location for the first Harrow International School owing to the strong links between Harrow School and Thailand’s royal family, with 23 princes of the royal household having been educated at Harrow from the late Nineteenth Century to the late Twentieth Century. Under Mr Morris’ leadership the school grew in its rented premises to 800 students in four years. Mr Morris was succeeded by Dr Mark Hensman, formerly Headmaster of Napier Boys’ High School, New Zealand. He was Head Master for HIS Bangkok for seven years. During this period the school moved site to its custom-designed campus and grew to 1200 students. On its new extensive site, the school was able to introduce a House system, boarding and an extensive co-curricular programme. Dr Hensman left his post as Head Master to become the Director of Schools for Harrow International Management Services. He was succeeded by Mr Kevin Riley, formerly Headmaster of the John Lyon School, the Harrow Foundation’s day school at Harrow-on-the- Hill. My Riley is returning to the UK to take up the Headship of Bradford Grammar School.
